e Abbeville is to have another mam
moth rice warehouse. It will be
erected on the ground of the Abbe
ville Rice Mill Co. and the contract
which has been let to Mr.:Eckart, of

This will give Abbeville three large
warehouses and afford ample room
for storing the crops of those who do
not wish to dispose of their rice at
Sale of Sugar Factory.

the plant of the Peoples Sugar Com- -
pany at Perry's Bridge will be sold

lars to complete the plant and it is
probable that a new company wili be1
formed here to bid the concern in 1
and put if in running order.
